Billboard has an interesting update to the story: http://www.billboard.biz/bbbiz/indus...oad-1005662752

Quote:
Universal has confirmed for us that a takedown request was made over an unauthorized performance of one of its artists, Gin Wigmore. But we've also learned that Ken Hertz, attorney for Will.I.Am, also filed a takedown request last week with YouTube.

What's going on here?

Hertz says that like many of the artists who appear in the video, his client had never consented to the " Megaupload Mega Song."
